Driving and Niggles
thanks for the comments - will check with the dealer as I still can't find the oil level indicator on the menu even after warming up the car - the manual says engine off and ignition on?. As you say the few niggles are not too bad and hopefully will be sorted at the end of the month. I must say this is one of the best cars I have ever driven (I've had a few goods ones - the last car was an Audi TTRS), the chassis is well sorted and the feel from the steering is good and has pretty good feedback for an electronic system, much better than the 340I BMW which is scary in wet corners.
I do wish the crackles and pops were still there as in the F-Type-S but the sound when you get up the rev range is intoxicating - you just want to have it in dynamic and S mode all the time- - I replace the paddles with the Red Aluminium ones which are far nicer and abit easier to find with your fingers. Was hooning around a few local back roads the other day and it was just the best thing I've experienced. The inside quality is not that of the Merc but to be honest its still fells expensive, but the drive is the thing - point to point I would give an M4 a good run for its money!
As for the door light shining down on the ground - you know I've never noticed if it does. I have the ambient lighting pack so the whole inside of the car lights up in a choice of 10 different colours, when you put it into S mode everything glows red inside
The door sills always stay Illuminated blue but you only see them when you open the doors. The Heads Up display is great - especially when the sat nav is on.
